Need help about hotel decision! Romantik hotel U raka ?

Hello,

I have two nights to spend in Prauge. I am coming in from the main train station. Since we have a very short amount of time we want to stay somewhere that is easy to get around to the main sights from. I am currently reserved at the Romantik hotel U raka (cerminska 10-prague 1) but I am starting to think it is not centrally located although not really sure. I was very excited about this hotel at first because it is so unique, but it is costing 155 euro a night and I know we will barely be spending any time there. Ideally I would like to spend around 80 euro a night. Any help appreciated!!

are you also departing from the train station as well?

just a few 100 yards from the train station check out these..no idea of the price range

Chopin Hotel http://www.vi-hotels.com/en/chopin-prague/

987 Hotel www.987praguehotel.com/en/…

in the vicinity

IBIS http://ibispraha-oldtown.hotellls.com/

Elephant http://www.hotel-elephant.cz/cs/?

personal suggestion is DAP hotel ..last stop on green metro line..only 2 stops to the castle area and 4 stops to get you near Old Towne...great weekend rates, includes breakfast

hotel-dap.hotel.cz/…

.....

Romantika is not near the train station...it is on the caslte side but opposite Old Towne/ Wens. Square

Thanks so much for these suggestions. We are arriving by train, leaving at airport. Does that change anything?

leaving via airport...DAP would be a great spot ...I've stayed there numerous times ..you can have the receptionist book a reliable taxi directly to the airport or you can take public transport to the airport-a main depot /platform for folks getting to the airport. You can also store your luggage if you have a later flight.

...

a handful of restaurants and Czech pubs in that area.

you'd be on the metro and tram line as well...Prague sites are fairly compact and a walkable center.

look at my original list..those near the train station....there is an AE/Airport Express bus from the train station to the airport which would also be convenient for you.... bus departs every 30 mins...takes about 40 mins..in this case you pay the driver directly 60kc pp/ about $3 bucks.

the airport is not serviced by train or metro

my post above indicates the Airport Express bus to the airport from the train station

simply search TA-Prague 1 by price

accomodation in Vaclav square is in walkng vicinity of train station for ex Ramada

ramada.com/hotels/…

1 metro stop away from train station is Florenc..Jury's Inn http://prahahotels.jurysinns.com/

from Florenc, you could take the yellow metro line to the end, Zlicin, and then catch the city bus to the airport

Thank you, a lot of these hotels are very expensive (225 euro a night) the jury inn seems affordable though.
